With all the bad news about the economy and the state of our nation, you can take hope that CHANGE will be made in Washington. A CHANGE fueled by our president-elect. A CHANGE to make the BCS illegal:
Capitalizing on the momentum created by comments made by President-elect Barack Obama, Abercrombie and his co-sponsors plan to make the announcement at a press conference this week, possibly as soon as Thursday. They are also intending to send a letter of support to Obama.
Obama reiterated Sunday on 60 Minutes that he would like to see an eight-team playoff in major college football.
Abercrombie caused a minor stir in April when he initially announced submission of the bill. Abercrombie, a senior member of the House of Representatives, admitted back then he didn’t fully grasp details of the BCS but was still proceeding with fervor.
“It’s a racket,” Abercrombie told CBSSports.com at the time. “They’ve got a little cartel. It’s La Cosa Nostra … and slavery.”
Abercrombie is joined by co-sponsors Lynn Westmoreland (R-Georgia), Mike Simpson (R-Idaho) and Jim Matheson (D-Utah) behind the bill that never made it to the floor for a vote this year. It would be considered again when the 111th Congress convenes in January.

Its like the mob, and slavery? Really? Well, in that case, the federal government should get involved. We must stop this pigskin oppression before its too late! </sarcasm>
